EZI/O is a new revolutionary concept in Industrial/PLC I/O. Instead of the traditional PLC I/O that mounts vertically in horizontal back plane, EZI/O modules snap horizontally into the back plane. This allows very compact construction which not only provides high functionality, it retains and even enhances features found only in world class I/O costing 10 times more. This new concept has 5 patents pending.
As you see from the pictures above, here is what you get in a compact 2x2x1" output module for just $19:
|Old Traditional Back plane Construction:
I/O Modules plug in a vertical plane
|New Paradigm Shift : High Performance Small Profile I/O 2x2x1" Modules plug in a horizontal plane|
For most applications the original snap-in I/O modules have been more than adequate from a shock and vibration point of view. However, some customers have indicated a preference of having the traditional screw-down mechanism of other PLCs and their I/O modules. As a result we decided to tool screw-down versions of all EZPLCs as well as EZI/O. The rest of all functionality remains the same.
